At O’Sullivan Davies, our experienced de facto lawyers in Perth can advise on steps to take before or during a de facto relationship to prevent later arguments in the event the relationship breaks down. With years of legal experience in family law, our team are also involved in assisting parties who, following the breakdown of a de facto relationship, require assistance to resolve their parenting or property issues by alternative dispute resolution, or who require assistance to commence or respond to proceedings in the Court.
We also assist separating de facto couples in Perth who may have jurisdictional issues, for instance, if they are out of time to commence proceedings or if there is a dispute as to the existence of a de facto relationship in Perth.
Parties who have been in de facto relationships (including same sex couples) can mostly access an equivalent range of remedies in the Family Court with regard to financial matters to those available to married couples.
The law regarding parenting arrangements and child support is generally applicable to all children in the same manner, irrespective of whether the parents are in a marriage or de facto relationship.
